Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Post 8/9/1995 Show...

Everyone has an opinion on their favorite Grateful Dead show. After all, we have 30 years to pick from.

BUT... What is your favorite post 8-9-1995 show from the remaining members? Think about it...


Phil and Friends... His 12-29,30,31 San Fran Run in 2005 come to mind. As does 12-1-2005, Boston University. 2-12-2005, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.

Ratdog.... I still have to go with the night Jerry passed, Hampton Beach, NH, on 8-9-1995.

Hydra... 4-21-2005. Worcester Palladium.

Rhythm Devils... 6-8-2006 Gathering of the Vibes, and 10-29-2006, Vegoose.

Comes a Time Tribute... 9-24-2005 a The Greek, Berkeley.

hands down 12-31-03.

Very inspired playing. Not a fan of post GD acts but this nioght and the setlist are magic.

Honorable mention goes to a Bonneroo gig that has the second set opener of Box, Black Muddy River, Sugar mag, unbroken chain, space, drums. Switch these tunes and you get the last part of the Final soldier field gig in reverse.

"The dead" for both. 2002 I think for Bonneroo. I also like the Terrapin station shows at Alpine Valley as "the Other ones"

I'm 23. I saw Jerry a few times as a small child but obviously wasn't paying the music much attention. I remember a lot of balloons and glow sticks, and I remember they played Touch of Grey, which was popular at the time and I liked it because they had that one line about ABCs. Anything a 3 year old can relate to.

I saw Bobby at the Further Fest in Atlanta in 97, though as an eighth grader, I still wasn't into the scene.

My first "real" show happened when I was 18- Other Ones 12-31-02 at the Oakland Coliseum. Life changing first set

Jam>St. Stephen>The Eleven>Jack Straw, UBC, Scarlet>Fire..

Phil and Bobby, Mickey and Billy jamming with Jimmy Herring. It was great.

Was a long show too - over 5 hours as I recall.

Since then I saw Phil and Bobby a bunch of times, but the only shows that come close were the ones last month at the Fillmore and the Bill Graham Civic...Deadheads for Obama had some nice moments too, if I had to give it to any of those it would be 1.26, hands down

Although I have not seen too many post GD shows, I agree with lobster 12 about the Other Ones at Alpine Valley in 02'. But the 2004 shows as the "Dead" at Alpine was better. The one with Warren H. This was a very good show with a great scene.

E.Troy,WI July 24, 2004

Set 1 Hey, Pocky Way>MNS, Wheel>Doin that Rag, Half Step, Strange World>Casey Jones,

Set 2 Tomorrow Never Knows>Reuben&Cherise>Born Cross Eyed>Cryptical>Other One>D/S>Morning Dew, Unbroken Chain>UJB>China/Rider E:Lovelight

Beyond those Phil and Phish shows, The other Ones at Shoreline in July 1998 was very special. Both my brother and I felt we left the ground a couple of feet during the Scarlet jam, Kimmok, wow. Bruce was amazing, as was the rest of the band. The second night Billy joined in.

These two shows were fantastic.

Does anyone know where I can find them?

Not a big fan of post Jerry as far as listening to goes. I think the April 99 Phil with Trey and Page are about as good as it gets.

I saw " the Dead" at the Gorge in 2002 and man was that a waste of a drive. Between Joan and Phil singing man it was boring.

I did have the priveledge of seeing that 2005 Comes A Time show and I have to say I definately felt the magic. The beautiful Greek, a wonderful crowd, and I really dug Bobby singing Lazy River Road. I never was even a fan of that tune before that night.

Hey Lobster, I can get you a copy if you're so inclined. I'll have to give it another listen to be objective about it BUT I remember enjoying it at the time and that's saying a lot for me. I never enjoyed that tune, even with Jerry playing it. It was always a buzzkill for me. I'd rather have heard a million times :Morning Dew, Wharf Rat, Stella, Black Peter, ANY of the standards in the slot SOTM fell in. that tune just never did anything for me. Then hearing the post GD doing it makes it even worse for me. Saying all this I did really enjoy the Hornsby treatment and the sparse non overbearing arrangement. Wasn't on my list of what I wished they'd play but I still enjoyed it. If it was anyone but Hornsby doing it I don't think I would have dug it like I did.

Thanks Man, no need. But I truly appreciate the offer. I heard good things plus I have seen Hornsby do it in concert. I think this one has Trey I believe.

I'm totally biased, but I had an incredibly great time at Ratdog 12/13/97. It was my birthday and they played at the old Wiltern Theater in LA. Bobby had barely begun to cover Jerry's tunes, and I think it should have stayed that way IMHO.

Anyway, it was a great night, and I was definitely feeling no pain.
